Bought a 12oz package of Ole Carolina Hickory Smoked Sliced Bacon today at Walmart. I brought it home and hubby decided to use it for BLT's. He started to take it out of the pack while I put away the rest of the groceries. He stops me to show me what he has. The bacon is EXTREMELY fatty (the slice viewed in the 'representative slice' tear-away hole is much less so). In many places the 'slices' are one stringy piece, and not separated from one another.
Was NOT equal to what the quality of this product has been before (have bought this brand name a few times). This brand name is cheaper than many others, and I have often bought it for that reason. It has never been of an equal quality with the other brands that I sometimes buy, but this time was of even lesser than usual. (Usually for such as sandwiches or breakfasts I buy the better stuff; this was actually intended for potato soup. I can usually get away with using this in soup; this time I would've been disappointed even had I used it for that.)
I have been buying this chicken for about 2 years without any complaints until tonight. About 3/4ths of my chicken breasts had weird blue and black flecks over top of it like someone grabbed them with dirty gloves. I also found two male beard hairs within the package. One on top with the paint flecks and one underneath the chicken. I think I have lost my appetite to ever buy this product again!
SULLLIVAN, ILLINOIS -- I am so mad at this company. They give food a bad name. I bought 2 packages of bacon and they contained nothing but fat, get all white meat on bacon and no red. Wtf. This is ridiculous. I want a damned refund. Thanks for spoiling my breakfast. Signed the bacon eater.
PO BOX 2020, SPRINGDALE AR 72765-2020 -- I purchased a 10lb bag of Gold Leaf leg quarters and as I was repackaging them for freezing I found a large chunk of fat, not attached to anything. Also in the package was a neck with lots of skin and fat on it. I feel like these parts were added as filler to make it to the 10 lbs. So I feel like I was cheated and did not get 10 lbs of leg quarters.
FORT WORTH, TEXAS -- I purchased a pkg of ground sirloin at Walmart Super Center in Fort Worth, TX. Pkg stated it was 90/10 All Natural Ground Beef Sirloin with no artificial ingredients. Guaranteed 100% freshness. It did not even resemble meat and had no taste whatsoever. I would say it was 90% artificial.
SPRINGDALE, ARKANSAS -- I bought Corn King bacon distributed by TSD Sales and Distribution, barely received any bacon, mostly fat, at least 7/8 of the package. Will always look now at who is distributing and packaging. Will never buy again from TSD, they should be closed down. I have never complained about a food product enough to sit down and write a complaint, but I paid for this and literally received 1/8 of the cost I paid.
